  • Fox News was created to push right-wing nonsense to the mainstream, and now there’s no escape.Join the Video Lab! http://bit.ly/video-labRead more about the hack gap on Vox.com: https://www.vox.com/2018/10/23/180044...We tend to assume that if a story is being covered by major news networks, it’s because journalists have decided that the story is important. But thanks to Fox News, that’s not always true. The network was specifically created to generate scandals that would hurt Democrats and help Republicans. And because most major networks pay attention to what happens in conservative media, those pseudoscandals end up creeping into mainstream coverage. The result is a media ecosystem that advantages Republicans by paying disproportionate attention to right-wing talking points.

    If journalists arent gatekeeping then who is? How do stories get chosen? Osmosis? Your view of the media is naive and your appraisal of the video is arrogant.

    @Angel of gaming 1984 is a book which was written by George Orwell. Strange that you reference a film/movie.

    Disingenuous and no sense of self. Activism is not journalism.

    @aeonjoey I* Just* I don't*I think you should learn how to start a proper sentence with a capital letter before questioning someone else's language skills. Furthermore, pronoun "I" is always capitalized, even in the middle of the sentence. PS: English is a foreign language for me. Maybe because of your higher intelligence, you know new rules of English grammar which I am not even aware of !!!

    A Journalists job is not to be the Gatekeeper. That was a really stupid thing to say.

    Of course journalists are gate keepers. Who do you think picks the stories they cover? They do. So naive to think they don't so this. This video is very insightful and explains perfectly how the media works.

    @Gelos Lives None, that's why I don't pretend to know everything. I'm just calling out people who do. I never stated my opinion on that matter, because that's what it would be, an opinion, my feelings. Not the reality, as everyone in those comments like to pretend to know.

    Journalist aren't supposed to Gatekeep, you're meant to report facts even if you don't agree with them.

    So if journalists aren't gate keepers then who is choosing the stories they report? Someone has to make that decision. I dont think you understand the concept of the media.

  • Matthew Mazzetti

    This legitimately terrifies me. You think the primary job of news is to gatekeep and decide what information the public has access to. And then you criticize Fox for allegedly doing that same thing.

    "It rained today in Detroit, Minneapolis, and Chicago. Less rain in Seattle. I have a dog. They are paving the roads in New Orleans. Sky is blue. We had frittatas for lunch. This pen is blue and almost out of ink." Lots of things are facts, not all things are relevant, even fewer are relevant to all people. If you were anything more than a bot, that wouldn't need to be explained.

    If the news arent gate keeping then who is? Someone, somewhere decides what every news organisation decides to report on. Fox News, New York Times, all of them.

    Ironically, Oliver has done more journalism in his limited season than Fox has done in a decade. Fox regurgitates and comments, it doesn’t investigate.
